This is what I really wanted. Each facility was thoughtful and customer oriented. Both my wife and me find it nice for a hassle free, fresh and safe. Unmatched place for stunning view from the room. Love it.

I have spent most of the last 18 months travelling around Australia, staying in hotels near and far to home. comparing you hotel I would have to say that you are charging Hyatt, Hilton, Mercure, Playford hotel prices but providing best western . the room was grubby, there was no little extras, No slippers, no dressing gown, no hot chocolate and no cookies in the complimentary drinks selections. the tiles in the bathroom were very dirty and there was black marks on the floor. there was no bathtub in the ensuite , the staff were great and the room has nice decor.

Decent Hotel, Good Location

Peter C. Couples - 23/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our stay was quiet, relaxed & room was spotless & comfortable. Given the change in breakfast presentation to a la carte because of the new Co-vid virus seating, my breakfast (Eggs Benedict) was tasty but cold. On the other hand we had drinks in the bar later with friends & service was excellent.

lovely surprise upgrade, excellent all round

Excellent Hotel

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Bobbie Business - 16/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Novotel proved to be an excellent option for my 3 day business trip last week. The room was well appointed with clean bathroom and very comfortable bed. Air-conditioning was effective, once I worked out how to control it. There were no drawers,, which was a little frustrating for a stay of more than a day or two. I enjoyed breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant daiy. The dinner menu is fairly broad and the staff were receptive to minor menu changes within the menu. Dinner was relatively expensive, though genuinely high quality food. The beef cheeks melted in the mouth and I would return to the hotel just for that meal option. Breakfast was the usual buffet, but with a good range of options to cater for all tastes.
